Egypt Hit with Plague of Deadly Scorpions

Egypt Hit with Plague of Deadly Scorpions

Is this End Times Prophecy being Fulfilled?

On Saturday, November 13, 2021, three people were killed and over 500 were treated for scorpion bites in the city of Aswan in southern Egypt when it was overrun with the fat-tail scorpion, one of the most dangerous groups of scorpion species in the world. 

Rabbi Yosef Berger, the rabbi of King David’s Tomb on Mount Zion says all the plagues will reappear in the final Redemption but in even more powerful forms. He bases this belief on Micah 7:15 as well as the Midrash Tanchuma teachings. 

I find the Rabbi’s remarks interesting since we see similar teachings about the 7-year Tribulation in Revelation. In the fifth trumpet judgment (Revelation 9:1-12) we are told demon locust with tails like scorpions will rise up and sting those with the mark of the beast, tormenting them for five months. 

Could it be as we approach the end of the church age, the judgments of the 7-year Tribulation will begin to cast a shadow over our time today? 

If so, what should we do? Jesus said we are to keep watch and make ourselves ready. When we see these signs appearing in our time, it’s as if Jesus is handing us the baton saying: 

“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. (Matt 28:19-20) For the harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. (Luke 10:2

It is our hope these prophecy news articles will help you share God's Word with those around you, knowing according to 2 Peter 3:9 that God does not wish for any to perish but for all to come to repentance.
